    Also snipped from the link above:
    I wonder how the boy got access to a pistol at a Boy Scouts Camp?

    Poor boy must have been going through a difficult time. This should have been a happy time for him.

    ETA: This thread may be in the wrong place if this was truly a suicide. But the article says that the person who placed the 911 call described it as a suicide attempt. It is being investigated as a homicide. So, who placed the 911 call I wonder?

    A lot of conflicting reports:

    Even if the boy's death is determined to be a suicide, I imagine someone will be held accountable for providing him with the pistol, or failing to secure their firearm.

    So sad; suicide is always horrific but when it's a child? Sweet boy, I hope he is now completely free of whatever was troubling him and that he has found the peace that he sought.

    disclaimer in case it's necessary: not advocating suicide

    Although most MSM articles report the gunshot wound as self-inflicted, some MSM reporters are still hesitant to label the death as a suicide. LE are still investigating.

    They still haven't said who made the 911 call. That may be one piece of evidence LE are trying to determine.

    I'm curious to find out where he got the gun from if there wasn't a shooting component at the camp. Are adults allowed to carry at Boy Scout camp or is it a gun free zone?

    Condolences to the family.

    This is one of the most confusing cases. So many conflicting stories. I pray they get to the truth quickly
